Whilst I’ve been in Korea, something special has happened: A-Level Results Day. Results have come in, students have found out their grades, thousands of people have had to be rescued by fire brigades after jumping up in the air photogenically and getting stuck. I hope things worked out well for everyone, and those of you now coming to Leicester in the autumn — welcome! I’ll see you there. If you have any questions about the process, don’t hesitate to ask them here.
My year of globetrotting adventures has now come to an end, so I’ll post a little retrospective here even though I’d like to make a few more comments about Seoul over the next few weeks. It’s nothing shocking for me to say I recommend the Summer Programmes (that’s last year’s link) and more specifically Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, because lately it seems like I’ve been recommending everything I do. Don’t think that this is because I’m easy to please, I think it’s more because I’m always right in everything I do.
Well, I can’t back that up…
But if you have any interest in going to South Korea, the International Summer Session at HUFS is a fantastic way to dive headfirst into East-Asia with the support to stop you from drowning. I’ve got to tip the hat I don’t have to the organisers — the extremely detailed schedule of trips, events, and lessons went off without any trouble at all. Five weeks went by like five days. Anyone interest in unforgettable experiences need apply. That’s everyone, right?
And if you want to go next year then I’ll probably see you there, because I’m going again.
